Witches take centre stage at the 2023 Festival, and its official poster also pays tribute to them. Basque actress Itziar Ituño brings life to a double-faced sorgina, light and dark, powerful yet merciful.
The creative team headed by Nerea Torrijos, who also designed the wardrobe, turns away from the clichéd takes on witches, in pursuit of Magic. The design in tarot card form seeks to connect with more ancestral and subtle essences, with the Greek oracles, with the arcane… representing the strength of the two types of magic.
The author of the photograph is Marta Fresnillo and the poster design is by the studio Alive VFX & Design.
The poster corresponds to the shared leitmotiv with TerrorMolins Sorginak-Bruixes, recently announced, which includes the exhibition Bruixes – Sorginak – Brujas. Illustrated Witches' Sabbath, curated by Borja Crespo, as well as publishing of the book written by Elisa McCausland and Diego Salgado Beso negro: Brujería, cine y cultura pop.
